Bariatric surgery involves procedures such as gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy.

Obesity

Obesity is an abnormal, unhealthy condition of having excessive body fat or weight than is necessary for a particular height. Obesity is a major cause of death as well as several serious health conditions including chronic heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure.

Robotic Gastric Bypass

Robotic gastric bypass is a type of weight loss/bariatric surgery to treat obesity (excessive weight). In this surgery, the stomach size is reduced to limit your food intake and the small intestine is re-routed to reduce the absorption of food. It is performed using a da Vinci robotic surgical device.

Robotic Sleeve Gastrectomy

Robotic sleeve gastrectomy is a weight loss or bariatric surgical procedure for the treatment of obesity. It is performed with the help of a da VinciĀ® Robotic Surgical System. In this procedure, about 60-80% of your stomach is removed. This restricts your food intake and helps control and reduce your weight to prevent obesity-related health disorders such as diabetes, hypertension, and sleep apnea.

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

Sleeve gastrectomy also referred to as vertical sleeve, gastric sleeve or tube gastrectomy is a surgical procedure performed for the treatment of obesity. The procedure is a restrictive bariatric surgery to treat extremely obese patients with a high BMI of 40 and above. It encourages weight loss by restricting the stomach size, so it holds only a limited amount of food. This helps patients to eat less without hampering the normal digestive process.
